BENDING STEEL is a moving documentary which follows Chris Schoeck, an endearing yet unassuming man as he trains to become a professional oldetime strongman. While preparing to perform incredible feats of strength publicly, Chris privately struggles to overcome crippling fears and inhibitions. For the first time in his life he is compelled to confront his own social awkwardness, unsupportive parents, and an overwhelming fear of failure. What unfolds is one man’s inspirational quest to find his place in the world.

Followed by Q&A with Chris “Wonder” Schoeck and filmmakers Ryan Scafuro and Dave Carroll.  Co-presented with the Camden International Film Festival
